The Clark baseball and softball teams both experienced on Tuesday what has been rare this season – a loss. It’s the first one in district for baseball and only the second for softball and both only by the narrowest of margins.
The Cougars softball team just couldn’t get their bats fired up as Holmes got the one run they needed in the 4th inning to beat Clark 1-0. That happens to be the same score as their only other district loss, which was Taft in the first game of the season. Clark did have 6 hits to Holmes’ 4, but couldn’t muster the runs. The loss leaves them in 3rd place in district, but with the chance to make a statement and a push in the next two games as they play second place O’Connor on Thursday and first place Taft next Tuesday.

In the 3rd inning, Jay scored another run, giving Jay a 2-1 lead at the end of 3. Jay scored another 3 runs in the bottom of the 4th and Chris Werland took the mound to get the last Jay out; score Jay 5, Clark 1.
At the top of the 5th inning, Clark bats said “ENOUGH”. Hunter McFall led off the inning and hammered a ball to the wall with a triple.
